Design Hotels has launched a new addition to its Oceania portfolio - Hotel DeBrett in New Zealand. Situated in a traditional Art Deco building in Auckland’s hip fashion district, the 25-room hotel is designed and run by Michelle Deery and John Courtney, who take a hands-on approach. As a reinvention of one of Auckland’s oldest hotels, Hotel DeBrett retains some of its homey and familiar features, such as an open gas-burning fire, oak floorboards and exposed brick walls. The hotel’s bar has also been carefully restored to its former glory, while The Kitchen restaurant, is headed by award-winning chef Mark Sycamore. Additionally, there is a free gym access and a variety of meeting spaces, including a courtyard, basement, loft suite and boardroom.
